Good to read that they move forward. Should be an exiting construction process.

At least Kanto gives us to see what approximately turns out with the skyscrapers in the world, i also not much like his 670 meter Burj Khalifa, but once again, he gives us what we lack on this forum - visual progress comparison in diagram, and we have to go to the SSP, CTBUH, etc.
And i took over the exact numbers (roof height and spire height).

Yeah, me too! (but a bit higher, like on the top of Burj Khalifa like Tom Cruise)

We don't have any official heights, only rumours.

Apparently some people on gaoloumi (sp?) get a kick out of making those up. Don't hold them as fact unless they credit an official source.

which is also the reason our title still is 700m+. the suspense in this building maybe being taller than we think is amazing though, so i could care less about getting a final height for now and rather see some progress :p
